More power to all those people who want to experiment with new stuff (like, um, KDE4, which is *still* not ready for prime time (I'm looking at *you*, SuSE)), but I use Linux to Get Real Work Done For Clients, and I don't have time for that sort of thing, in general, nor for my distribution managers to pull it on me.
And please, let me not hear "but you don't have to upgrade"; sure I do: otherwise they'll EOL the distribution and in some cases (I'm looking at *you* SuSE), *gratuitously move the repos* so the OS can't even get the last set of security updates from them.
(In the case of SuSE 8, I think it was, you *couldn't even tell it where the repo WAS*, to make up for that gratuitous move.)
